Bless you for preserving these gems and making them accessible!!!
I am pleased that they are available in MPEG-2 - universally accepted standard!
Windows Media, Real Video, Ogg, DiVX etc aren't universally accepted - like 13mm film VS. 35mm film
Thank you again!

We had a pizza place in my home town of Juneau, Alaska that used to show Charlie Chaplin movies all the time. This brought back some happy memories. Chaplin is a wonderful sunbeam of happiness. Rock on.

DivX is a trademarked proprietary formet. An archive *cannot* use such a thing as its possible (albeit unlikey) that in 200 years things encoded in DivX won't be readable.
Just think about files created in (say) Visicalc. Once the leader in its field, now relatively unknown.
MPEG is a *documented* *standard*, and a Good Thing for an archive to use. DivX MPEG is not.
By the way, these Chaplin films are great and I'll download them in a mo' ;-)
